Nothing can happen to you that is not positive.  Even though it looks and feels at the moment like a negative crisis, it is not. -Joseph Campbell

“Any disaster you can survive is an improvement in your character, your stature, and your life,” explained Joseph Campbell.  “It may look like a wreck, but go at it as though it were an opportunity, a challenge.  If you bring love to that moment – not discouragement – you will find the strength is there.”  Joseph Campbell was a professor of mythology and wrote many books including The Hero With A Thousand Faces.

This week, I encourage you to reflect on a crisis you might be experiencing.  And can you see the opportunity in it?

Enjoy a happy and productive week!

Imagine how free you would be if you could shift your judgement back to love. -Gabrielle Bernstein

“Why are we so divided?…What is the way out?” asks Gabrielle Bernstein, best-selling author of Spirit Junkie and The Universe Has Your Back.  “Deep down we are all loving, kind and compassionate beings.  Yet our actions, the way we think, the way we communicate, the way we relate to ourselves and each other often brings us the opposite experience.”  Gabrielle Bernstein released the video, Before you judge anyone, watch this on Facebook in January and it’s been viewed almost 8 million times.

“The miracle is not only that we give up judgement, the miracle is that we no longer believe in it,” she continues.

This week, I encourage you to give up judgement!
